ANN: "The Japanese publisher Media Factory has announced that it will launch a new magazine called Monthly Comic Gene next April. The magazine will feature two series by Minari Endo, the Brave10 manga series by Kairi Shimotsuki, and a series tentatively titled Black Bard by Ichiya Sazanami. Endo will create both an all-new original work and a spinoff from her Maria Holic manga for the magazine. Shimotsuki is moving Brave10 to Comic Gene after ending its first story arc in the January issue of Media Factory's Monthly Comic Flapper magazine on Saturday. Sazanami is the winner of the 4th Media Factory Comic Prize."
